Twilio partners with Google's Cloud platform
Twilio announced that it is integrating its API platform into Google's Cloud platform products, making it the first voice and messaging solution to provide that capability to Google's Cloud platform.
Twilio, which provides APIs to developers to integrate voice and text messaging into their iOS and Android apps, will make it easier for developers to incorporate in-app dialing, conference calling, group texting and more into their apps.
According to Twilio CEO Jeff Lawson, the partnership will allow developers to integrate the two platforms and make more compelling apps.
Last fall Twilio partnered with AT&T Mobility (NYSE:T) and launched Advanced Communications Suite, a Web portal that provided enterprise and small business customers with a host of voice and SMS-enabled applications for interacting with employees, partners, suppliers and consumers.
As of October, Twilio had more than 150,000 developers using its service. The company has received more than $33 million in venture capital funding.
